      Joules

    Correct Answer
    B. Vars
    Explanation
    Reactive power is measured in vars, which stands for volt-amp reactive. Reactive power represents the power that oscillates between the source and the load in an alternating current (AC) circuit, without being converted into useful work. It is necessary for the proper functioning of inductive and capacitive loads, such as motors and transformers. While watts represent the real power in an AC circuit, vars specifically measure the reactive component. Voltamps and ohms are units of electrical power and resistance, respectively, but they do not specifically measure reactive power. Joules, on the other hand, measure energy, not power.

    If an AC voltage has a frequency of 350 hertz, how many times will the positive peak value of voltage occur after 2 seconds?

    • A.

      350

    • B.

      700

    • C.

      1400

    • D.

      2800

    • E.

      175

    Correct Answer
    B. 700
    Explanation
    The frequency of an AC voltage represents the number of complete cycles it goes through in one second. In this case, the AC voltage has a frequency of 350 hertz, which means it completes 350 cycles in one second. Therefore, in 2 seconds, it will complete 2 times the frequency, which is 700 cycles. Since the positive peak value of voltage occurs once in each cycle, it will occur 700 times in 2 seconds.

    What is the turns ratio of a 3 phase 500kVA, 13,200-480 volt rated D-D transformer that is 80% loaded?

    • A.

      38.122

    • B.

      27.5

    • C.

      22.0

    • D.

      47.653

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. 27.5
    Explanation
    The turns ratio of a transformer is the ratio of the number of turns in the primary winding to the number of turns in the secondary winding. In this question, the transformer is rated 500kVA, which means it can handle a maximum power of 500kVA. Since it is 80% loaded, it is operating at 80% of its maximum power, which is 400kVA. The formula to calculate the turns ratio is (Vp/Vs) = √(Pp/Ps), where Vp and Vs are the primary and secondary voltages, and Pp and Ps are the primary and secondary powers. Plugging in the values given in the question, we get (13200/480) = √(500/400). Solving this equation gives us a turns ratio of 27.5.

    The RMS value of a sinusoidal wave is equal to the peak value times:

    • A.

      2.0

    • B.

      1.732

    • C.

      .80

    • D.

      .707

    • E.

      1.414

    Correct Answer
    D. .707
    Explanation
    The RMS value of a sinusoidal wave is equal to the peak value times 0.707. This is because the RMS value represents the effective value of the wave, which is equivalent to the value of a DC signal that would produce the same amount of power in a resistive load. For a sinusoidal wave, the peak value is the maximum value of the wave, and multiplying it by 0.707 gives the RMS value. This constant factor of 0.707 is derived from the mathematical relationship between the peak and RMS values of a sinusoidal wave.

    A 119 volt, 60hz AC voltage is put across a series circuit with an 8 ohm resistor and a capacitor who's reactance is 15 ohms. What is the circuit impedance? Z = Square root of (R^2 + Xc^2)

    • A.

      23 ohms

    • B.

      17 ohms

    • C.

      15 ohms

    • D.

      12.5 ohms

    • E.

      7 ohms

    Correct Answer
    B. 17 ohms
    Explanation
    The circuit impedance can be calculated using the formula Z = Square root of (R^2 + Xc^2), where R is the resistance and Xc is the reactance of the capacitor. In this case, the resistance is 8 ohms and the reactance is 15 ohms. Plugging these values into the formula, we get Z = Square root of (8^2 + 15^2) = Square root of (64 + 225) = Square root of 289 = 17 ohms. Therefore, the circuit impedance is 17 ohms.

    • D.

      Leads the voltage by less than 90 degrees

    • E.

      Lags the voltage by less than 90 degrees

    Correct Answer
    D. Leads the voltage by less than 90 degrees
    Explanation
    In a series AC circuit that contains only capacitive reactance and resistance, the current leads the voltage by less than 90 degrees. This is because in a capacitive circuit, the current leads the voltage due to the fact that the capacitor charges and discharges ahead of the voltage. However, the presence of resistance in the circuit causes the current to be slightly delayed compared to a purely capacitive circuit, resulting in the current leading the voltage by less than 90 degrees.

    • C.

      20 ohms

    • D.

      10 ohm

    Correct Answer
    C. 20 ohms
    Explanation
    Based on the circuit diagram you sent, the total circuit resistance (RT) can be determined using the following formula for resistors in parallel:
    1/RT = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3
    Where:
    RT is the total resistance
    R1, R2, and R3 are the values of the individual resistors
    Plugging in the values from the image:
    R1 = 50 ohms
    R2 = 25 ohms
    R3 = 25 ohms
    1/RT = 1/50 + 1/25 + 1/25
    1/RT = (1 + 2 + 2) / 100
    1/RT = 5/100
    RT = 100 / 5 ohms
    RT = 20 ohms
    Therefore, the total circuit resistance (RT) in the image is 20 ohms.
